Nutrición Integradora de la Vida Salvaje

Publicado por Maverick Panditas


Integrative Wildlife Nutrition
Autor: Perry S. Barboza, Katherine L. Parker, Ian D. Hume,
Idioma: Inglés
Número de páginas: 342
Materia: Veterinaria, Biología
Año: 2009
Formato: PDF
ISBN: 354087884X

Este libro aplica los principios básicos de la nutrición para el estudio de peces, reptiles, aves, y mamíferos en sus ambientes naturales. La adquisición de alimento, su digestión y absorción, y la retención y utilización de los sustratos de energía, agua y otros nutrientes son tratados en detalle. Esta metodología integrada conecta los rasgos de comportamiento, morfológicos y bioquímicos de los animales a sus historias vitales y us respuestas a entornos variables y cambiantes. Los autores también proporcionan un marco práctico para el entendimiento de las interacciones entre los recursos alimentarios y poblaciones de vida salvaje.
Los lectores pueden usar este texto para programas de conservarión de vida salvaje y como una fuente de referencia para los cursos relacionados con ecología animal.
